Thread: D & C Firearms

  1. #1

    D & C Firearms

    Hats off to Devon and Cornwall, my 243 variation came back in 3 weeks, (first centrefire). It is open as I requested but does include the condition that I can only use it with an experienced centrefire user which is not a big problem. Does anyone know how long that condition has to remain?

    The best person to ask will be your FEO but I would think it would be when the "experienced CF user" writes a letter to D&C stating that you are ready to go "solo".
    You're very fortunate to have turned round your variation so quickly. I applied for my renewals(co-terminous) at the end of March, arrived this week (2months overdue!!)
    Cheers, Pete.

    Its automatically taken off after 6 months!

    Thanks Gents, I can live with it for 6 months. My 14 year old son's co-terminus grant only took 6 weeks, he received it 2 weeks ago. I would have thought that they would prioritise renewals - not complaining though!

    Cheers

    Paul

    P.S. Whereabouts are you Pete?

    Don't count on it being taken off automatically, I know there is a great deal of variation between forces, but I would guess they want some sort of assurance that you are now safe and component to be out unsupervised, otherwise you could not go out or fire a shot and have your restriction lifted. You would then have to apply to have the restriction / conditions removed. Good luck Wingy

    Amazing how it varies!!
    I'm about as far North in the county as you can get(without getting your feet wet)
    Cheers, Pete.

    Certainly for those I have mentored in D&C the police have required a letter from me before taking off the mentoring condition.

    I rang D&C about mine a year after i had had my licence they said it automatically comes off after 6 months there was nothing mentioned on my cert about the condition though!

    I guess that there is no strict policy and firearms will, as ever, consider each application on merit. I'll get some rounds on my ticket, give it 6 months and with a letter from my mate ask them to remove it.

    Thanks for all the advice, much appreciated.

    Paul

    P.S. Anyone using a Howa 1500 sporter, I'm thinking of getting one at the end of the month.

    That must be a new or one-off thing, as I've also heard them say that it only comes off automatically at the first renewal (i.e. 5 years).
